    Made me approach storytelling in a new way

    This was my gateway film to the dear David Lynch. No training wheels for me. Since then I've digested most of his other work, though nothing has stuck with me like this movie. This is a complicated world where characters aren't reduced to good or evil. Instead, they have deep motivators like justice and pride. You end up with questions like: is there a villain, or an angel of vengeance? Scenes take their time, but every line of dialog drags you a little further in the woods. This movie has influenced both the stories I gravitate toward and the stories I write. I consider this movie a friend.

    Finally!

    I've been waiting (along with most Lynch fans) for years for a proper DVD release of this film, and the wait is finally over. I remember watching the VHS copy I have for the first time and walking away in awe of what I had just seen. There is such a complex web of plot going on here that you must see it more than once to have a good understanding of what it is all about. And what is it all about? It boils down to a few main ideas: guilt, love, passion, murder and acceptance. Watch the film, think about it. Watch it again. Think some more. Repeat this process (one that longtime Lynch fans are familiar with) until it all starts to come together. When it does, you will be thoroughly satisfied.

    A-symmetrical filmmaking

    You'd probably have to recognize Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, as the point where David Lynch finally shook off the shackles of pesky linear narritives and neatly wrapped story lines. Mulholland Drive was perhaps his most well received picture in this vein, but undoubtedly the best is Lost Highway. Lynchian trademarks like darkness, violence, sex and stilted dialogue abound and florish, steeped in an atmosphere of paranoia and dread, (that Lynch can apparently create out of thin air). Lost Highway, like Fire Walk With Me, Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire deals with guilt and madness stemming from or leading to murder, but Highway is the most focused and downright entertaining of the bunch. Don't be frustrated, Lynch wont pander to you. Watch it again and you'll pick up more. Style to burn and downright scary, (particularly any time Robert Blake is on screen), this one sets the standard for avant garde horror films.

    The mystery man..

    Robert Blake's charecter is a ''demon'' that haunts Fred's soul. Fred is in prison, but he has created a mental hell for himself in wich he can ultimately never escape the truth, as it ''really happened''. The mystery man is the only one who really knows the truth, and always reminds Fred when Fred begins to slip too far into his fantasy. MM:''In the far east when someone is sentenced to death...'' The entire film takes place in fred's demented mind, Physically Fred is in prison for the jealous murder of his wife Rene. MM:''If she told you her name was Alice, She's lying!'' Pete is Fred, notice how Pete's parents disapear when the mystery man gets on the phone w/Pete.. As reality begins to set in again.. And Fred's fantasy life as Pete begins to crumble. Fred's mind is haunted by the people he murdred, and his strange relationship with his late wife Rene, who he loved deeply, but also hated for not being entirely his. Alice:''You'll never have me!'' The ''lost highway'' is fred's journey from one fantasy life to the next. This is just my view of the film.

    One of the best movies of all time! - Phill G.

    David Lynch is absolutely brilliant, and I consider this his best work. Very dark and enveloping. If you're a fan of Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, etc. this one is even better. I won't tell you what it's about, or what it means to me. There are many things in the movie that I believe are open to personal interpretation. Unbelievably good movie, that's all I really need to say. Buy it.
